The Evolve All Shugyo event that took place September 20th, 2014, was a huge success. The goal of the event is to challenge the adult martial arts participants in a way that would ensure personal growth. The learning process was put above all else and there was no focus on winning or losing their match up. Below was the write up for the event that was giving to the participants.
A match based upon etiquette, respect and growth through learning.
There is no winner in these matches. There is simply a panel of judges that give feedback on the participants performance. The feedback is based upon how the participants handled themselves in the various situations that come up during the match. Feedback from the judges can be wide and varied depending upon what they themselves feel is important and the criteria set by the participants.
There aren’t any participation rewards or anything that is contingent upon a criteria. The goal of the match up is intrinsic and something that only the participants can decide. If there is any reward it is the feedback it’s self, as anyone on the journey of mastery, on an earth that has many social and connected beings can, learn from.
